………………. I was standing on the stage looking out across the now
empty arena one hand rubbing the back of my neck.
"Let me do that" Chad moved my hand and replaced it with both of
his and massaged my neck and shoulders
"I'm tired" I croaked fighting the wave of emotion running
"Me too Sweetheart" He stopped rubbing and wrapped his arms round
me "Lets go to bed" I nodded and turned as we walked off the
stage to the waiting car.
"Lukas took a cab" Dan said quietly as we got in "Chris you
okay?" I nodded he smiled at me as we headed for the hotel.
Getting up to the room seemed to take forever Lukas was sitting
in the lobby. He went to get up as we came in I caught Chad
shaking his head out of the corner of my eye.
"See you guys in the morning" Alfie called out as they headed for
"Night guys" I looked up and smiled at the people I knew I didn't
have to defend myself to.
"You want to forgo the whipped cream and the handcuffs tonight"
Chad smirked turning me to face him in the elevator.
"I want to go to bed, I want to go to bed naked with a hot guy" I
put my arms round his neck "You know I won't and wouldn't do…" He
cut me off with a long lingering kiss.
"Don't" he murmured pulling away "Lukas was an ass to say what he
did… I love you and I'm damn sure you must love me to marry me"
he lifted my hand "Mrs. Kroeger" I couldn't help but smile when
he said it.
"I still can't get used to hearing that"
"I assumed that you might one day sort of…" he sucked on his
bottom lip nervously
"Sort of what?"
"Well I mean it's fine if you want to stick with Sommers, after
all it's the name you became famous with" the doors opened on our
floor and he backed me out of the elevator "I have no problem
with you not…" My turn to shut him up I backed him into the door
and kissed him. My hands knotting in his hair.
"Okay get a damn room" Mike called out getting out of the other
elevator "And Chris he had his tonsils out as a kid so your
tongue won't find any"
"Night Mike" I smiled at him as Chad put the card in the lock and
opened the door to the room.
Chad's shirt was off before the door closed. He reached for me
with one hand and pulled me toward the bedroom. The lights from
the city were giving the room a faint warm glow. Chad backed me
to the bed. He smiled at me as he ran his fingers over my bare
shoulder, and traced the outline of my collar bone making me
shiver. His hands reached for the bottom of my shirt and pulled
it off over my head. His hand bushed over my skin so lightly it
hardly felt like he was touching me till his fingers caught on
the ring in my belly button, he'd brought it for me when we were
in Bali there were deep blue sapphires in each end of the bar
with a line of four tear drop shaped sapphires hanging from the
bottom. I felt my stomach contract as his fingers deftly undid my
jeans and his hands moved to push them over my hips and down my
legs. His eyes not leaving mine for and instant, till we were
both naked and on the bed, His one hand lightly holding both of
mine over my head while his slowly touched me not letting me
return the favor of the touch. Every movement was loving, every
time we made love it was different somehow more loving and more
intense than the time before. The way his body molded to mine
made me feel safe and like I was the only girl in the world. I
was his girl, I was his wife, My back arched to meet his body,
everything in me tensed and it felt like some was running a
current of electricity through me as he drove deeper into me my
name on his lips as we both held on to each other. For some
reason I was crying I could feel the tears running into my hair.
Chad moved off of me and pulled me to him his lips pressed to my
"Go to sleep baby" he murmured snuggling me into the crook of his
neck "I love you Chris, I love you and I trust you" were the last
things I heard as exhaustion and emotion made my body cave in to
the call of sleep………….
